Because Songs Matter

Dexateens – Teenage Hallelujah

Dexateens – Teenage Hallelujah

Far and away the Dexateens are the most criminally underrated rock’n’roll band in America. I can’t think of another band that has been cranking out album after album of intense killer songs with so little notice being paid. I’m not sure what the explanation is for that. I’ve been onboard since I first heard them […]

[Playlist] Ninebullets Radio – 11.09.2016 – 88.5FM HD2 WMNF Tampa

We’re so close! Four week’s in and the show almost “feels” live. I think I’ll nail it this week. Also, lot’s a requests came in this week and I managed to mix a lot of them into the show! Look, I know last night was a bummer but you know what? Music heals and I […]

Sorry for the late publication of the last show’s playlist but I have been out dodging dead deer on I-65. Better than never though. Am I right. So, here is Wednesday’s playlist on Friday. So, have a couple of sad hours before heading out to happy hour. Below is the playlist for November 02, 2016 […]

Micah Schnabel – Marching Band (These Divided States)

Micah Schnabel – Marching Band (These Divided States)

The world is pretty goddamned ugly right now. One big upside is the amount of art that is being created as a direct result. Micah has long been a political songwriter, in fact I’d argue that from the moment he found his own artistic voice just about everything he has written was political in nature. So […]

Mickey Rickshaw- Behind The 8 Ball

Mickey Rickshaw- Behind The 8 Ball

Several years ago my band American Thread was playing out in the Boston area pretty regularly and we played a bunch of shows at John Harvard’s Brewery.  A friend of ours had a Trad Irish three piece called Paint The Corner and they would play with us most shows.  They looked like punks but played […]

Help Caleb Caudle Make A Record

Help Caleb Caudle Make A Record

  I’ve mentioned before that I love crowd funding. No offense to any of the fantastic record labels that help get the music we all love out in the world but I am very glad to see artists be directly supported by the people who love their art. Right now one of the better folks […]

Week 2 of Ninebullets Radio is in the books! We fixed the sound issues and knocked a little more rust off. So, if me playing songs for you while kvetching about my shitty love life sounds like a good way to spend to hours to you then give the latest show an ear. Below is […]

M. Lockwood Porter – How To Dream Again

M. Lockwood Porter – How To Dream Again

  After a snippet of “The Preacher and the Slave” and the sound of amps warming up M. Lockwood Porter and band kick into a rocking rumination on the current state of the American Dream. “American Dream Denied” is a bold choice for an opener for an artist whose considerable strength lies mostly in his […]

Drummer Adam Nurre was injured in the accident and is currently hospitalized. The following statement was released by This Is American Music: “We are shocked and deeply saddened to learn this morning […]
